How to Snag a Lover

Because sometimes it can take a little more than sweet words to snag that special someone...

So, you want to snag a lover. Great! Now what? Well, you have to start taking some steps to make it happen! If you have no idea what those steps are, however, it can be an uphill battle to win the heart of your special someone. For a little inspiration, why not read though some helpful books on the subject.

Here are three actual books our visitors found useful when snagging a man:
Make Him DESPERATE to Be Yours Forever: The 3 Step Fail-Safe Method to Landing the Man of Your Dreams
The Temptress's Handbook: The Real Dirty, Naughty Secrets to Make Your Man FOREVER LUST After You
How to Get Your Ex Back Fast! Toy with the Male Psyche and Get Him Back with Skills only a Dating Coach Knows

And three books for seducing a woman:
The Dating Playbook For Men: A Proven 7 Step System To Go From Single To The Woman Of Your Dreams
Seduce Her With Text: The Gentleman's Guide To Texting Her All The Way To The Bedroom
Friendzone Proof: Friendship to Relationship - Cultivate Attraction, Become Desireable, Get the Girl

*Note: I've linked to the Kindle versions of these books, that way you can learn all the tricks, with less chance of anyone noticing what you are trying to accomplish. Kindle books can be read on most devices (PC, mobile, tablet, etc.) by downloading the free Kindle App.

To really go all out, you can also play with nature's greatest weapon - pheromones - available to be used by men or used by women. Both that I've linked to are unscented, so no one will know why they are suddenly instinctually attracted to you!

The Fine Print

I don't speak Spanish myself, so there could be mistakes in the translations. Most of what is here is user-submitted, but I do try to check for accuracy and make corrections as I can. Thanks for your understanding.
